Attracting Site Selectors with an Online Presence


Ramsey County leaders wanted to effectively communicate with site selectors and companies looking to relocate, providing them information on the ample incentives offered by the east metro. In order to gain the attention of site selectors and showcase their resources, they needed a strong online presence with a user-friendly tool.

To accomplish this economic development goal, Ramsey County pursued an online incentives dashboard. This online resource consolidates local, state and regional incentives and resources for existing and future businesses. By offering a powerful, easy-to-use online portal, Ramsey County economic developers and partnering agencies are committing to vibrant business growth.
